LADWP Toluca-Hollywood Line 1 Upgrade Project report

The City of Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) proposes to upgrade an approximately 1.8-mile portion of the existing Toluca–Hollywood 230 kilovolt (kV) Transmission Line 1 (TOL–HWD L1) cable, which runs underground within a pipe from the Nichols Canyon Terminal Tower to the Hollywood Receiving Station. All work would be located within the road right-of-way (ROW), the confines of LADWP property, or within an easement. The proposed TOL-HWD L1 Upgrade Project (proposed project) would include trenching and installing a new underground cable adjacent to the existing underground TOL-HWD L1 alignment from Hollywood Boulevard southeast to the Hollywood Receiving Station. The project also would include trenching and removing the existing underground TOL-HWD L1 pipe and cable and installing a new underground pipe and cable inside the same trench alignment within Nichols Canyon Road, north of Hollywood Boulevard to the Nichols Canyon Terminal Tower. Additionally, an existing transmission tower along the existing TOL-HWD L1 would be raised, and a portion of an existing Burbank Water and Power (BWP) distribution line that crosses under the TOL-HWD L1 would be lowered. To accommodate the system upgrade, modifications to the Nichols Canyon Terminal Tower and the Hollywood Receiving Station are proposed.

Environmental Justice Policy Program

ladcp logo

As a continued effort to recognize impacted communities and acknowledge historical needs to address environmental justice in Los Angeles, City Planning’s recently established Environmental Justice Policy Team is embarking on a comprehensive effort to centralize and strengthen environmental justice policies in the City’s General Plan. Los Angeles’s General Plan prescribes policy goals and objectives that inform land use decisions, and ultimately shape and guide the physical development of the City. The Environmental Justice Policy Program includes General Plan updates and extensive community outreach and engagement that will address issues related to land use, sustainability, climate equity, open space and environmental justice. A forthcoming Climate Vulnerability Assessment for the City will also inform the overall Department’s approach to environmental justice policy development. To find out more, explore:

  • The “Environmental Justice Policy Program” fact sheet, HERE, where you can download in Spanish or English.
  • The Plan for a Healthy Los Angeles which lays the foundation to create healthier communities for all Angelenos. HERE
